SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Corinthians extended their unbeaten league run to seven games with a 1-1 draw at home to America in Brazil's Serie A on Sunday.

The Sao Paulo side remain in sixth place with 30 points but will be unhappy at not winning all three points against a team that is fourth from bottom of the 20-team league.

Left back Marlon put the visitors ahead after seven minutes but Giuliano equalised for Corinthians 10 minutes later after a move that involved both their new signings, Willian and Roger Guedes.

Corinthians have now drawn three games in a row and face arch rivals Palmeiras in their next match on Sept 25.
